    Goju Karate is an incredible place to learn karatedo and more importantly, to really work on yourself mentally and physically. The dojo is small, and the students are incredibly kind and supportive. I feel this is like my second home!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Students take an introductory class which is one-on-one with Sensei -- the purpose of this class isn't to test ability or physical fitness, but rather to ensure that students are serious about training in karatedo and that our dojo is a good fit for them.

We have students of all ages -- the youngest student in our adult program is 17 and the oldest is 74. About half our students are women, and our karatedo students come from a broad range of backgrounds and places throughout the Bay Area (in fact, some of our students travel from Oregon and Nevada to train with us, spending long weekends in the Bay Area).


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Goju Karate is one of only seven dojos in the North America that is fully certified by the IMGKA to teach traditional karatedo.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our tuition is simple: $200 per month, for unlimited classes. There are no contracts or other requirements, other than a commitment to train seriously.
